Tarot Card Comparisons: Manara Erotic Tarot and Thoth Deck Tarot.- The Ace of Wands

The Erotic Tarot by Milo Manara, a critically acclaimed Italian artist, is not for those of the body hater or "flesh-o-probe" persuasion . So if you are offended by fine European art that shows nudity and genitalia this blog is not for you.

Besides being a practicing Qabalist, I am also a practicing Tantric in the techniques of Yoga. To me and all those of a higher state of mind, the human body is a God body. It is sacred and sanctified by the Creator and Creatrix and part of that sacredness is the sacrament of holy communion and/or sexual union.  It is magick in a living form of two who must become one to flow in power.  I am of the opinion, along with many other intelligentsia, that there is no shame in being a human, or that a soul who owns one, should not in anyway be embossed for doing so!
To make alive such a being is a high honor to any Spirit!
I've spent this life (and many others) learning the powerful purpose of having a human form as my power tool, not only because I was curious why those who rule us, wish us to reject it's divinity (Divide and conquer) and persecute those who refuse to lessen themselves, but also because God Wants To Be Human! In fact the very name Hu-man is God-mind, as Hu is a Chinese word for God and man comes from the Hindu word Manas, meaning Mind.
If you can imagine, you have a god mind!

The Milo Manara Ace of Wands, is called  1 of Fire, and he uses a red triangle as the symbol for the Fire/Wands cards.

Manara's Fire Suit is called ardour and corresponds to the Wands suit of the Thoth Deck. He states that it is "to the sense of taste, and the creative and passionate sphere".
Fire controls creativity, desire,passion, ambition and the satisfaction there of. For it is the Fiery Spirit in all of us that we've inherited from the "Divine Frenzy" or Lust of God to Be!

Fire as passion, can be ill defined and become that which seeks the perverse or transgressions.

The 1 of Fire, is the beginning or starting point of the creative passionate sphere,  It is about passion, creation and the satisfaction there of.
Manara has assigned and astrological meaning to the 1 of Fire, and that is of restlessness and impulsiveness and all consuming. Which he depicts very well as a impulsive sensual woman taking a bite out of a heart. Which, by the way, is what passion really does. It takes a bite out of our hearts, and can consume our souls. So caution is implied by this card as well,for to completely give yourself to your passions shall consume you. I like his very expressive art.

On the Qabalistic Tree of :Life, Kether is the Crown, the Observer, the Dark Energy, that is .
It is the Unknowable God of many religions, and yet as many of us know, religion is not God. Kether is the Idea of the Big Bang, the point, the Singularity. All of this was presented in past  blog attempts at explanation.

The Aces are also essences, so they too are not easily explained.
The Four Aces are related to Kether, thus they are representative of the Pure Forms of Energy that are elaborated by the other cards of the Tarot Deck and/or Sephiroth.
The consecutive elaboration of the Numbers, are Forces being woven together to form the Harmonic that is the World. A World that is 96% invisible to us. However, by combining the colors of the visible spectrum of electromagnetic light, we see that different combinations, make different color changes, such as blue combined with red makes purple, etc. This combinations are the necessary diversity of creation and can be called harmonies or sex..

To a Qabalist, the numbered Sephiroth are either Force or Form and even both depending on the Masculine expressive and Female receptive aspects of a particular Sephira.

Each Ace is unique and is distinct in its degree of density and in its ability to do work as a specific function in the One Energy. Thus, each Ace is the Seed of an Alchemical Element. We think we know what seeds are, but when we look at one, we don't see the Tree it represents. We just "kind of" know. That is also our conceptions of Kether, we just "kind of Know" that it is infinite, but then infinite is a human concept and Kether can't be known.....so this gets a bit tricky. So open mindedness is required and the courage to keep asking questions until answers emerge. The Influence of Kether is all around us, we just have to trust it knows us even if we know it or not. Obviously we exist, and we are a combination of many factors, some unknown to us, so it is easy to trust the subtle. Knowledge built us, and that knowledge is ours to understand.

THE ACE OF WANDS:
The Ace of Wands represents the Force of Spirit as the Element of Fire. It is the Radical or Root Force of the Fiery Motion that Moves all things.To those of us who need a pattern, the Four Aces are said to be placed at the North Pole of the Universe, where they revolve and govern the revolution  of the Universe. To a Qabalist the Four Aces are the connecting link between Yetzirah (Formative World) and the Material plane.

The Ace of Wands represents the outpouring of energy in the Universe, It is the root of the Powers of Fire and is the influence of Kether (Dark energy) on the level of pure Spirit. It is represented as the Hebrew letter Yod.Yod is related to Kether, not only is it isolated and self contained but it is also the formative graphic root for all other letters of the Hebrew Alphabet. Moreover, the Yod is Phallic. It is the Male-Fire (electric) that rushes out toward the Female-Water (Magnetic)

The Thoth Deck Ace of Wands shows Ten Yods emanating from a primitive burning club (fiery phallus). This represents the Primal force behind the entire Tree of Life, that is composed of 10 Sephiroth and their connecting paths of energy transference. The entire Tree is a glyph of  the Power of Fire, i.e. of Spirit. The scholarly student of Qabalah will find that the letter,Shin (Maternal Fire) and Yod are often used interchangeably when referring to the Tree of Life.

WHEN THE ACE OF WANDS or 1 of Fire IS THROWN DURING A DIVINATION:
  • It signifies a deep burning spiritual desire for self discovery and realization.
  • Trans-formative High Energy for new beginnings
  • the first impulse and passion to begin.
  • Creative energy and initiative, to begin new business ventures, new understandings, new foundations, where creative energy is flowing with plenty of potential and ambition to succeed.
  • The burning flame of Dragon Power, A balancing and increasing in Potency of Inner Fire . The Souring of Kundalini energy, "the Dragon within".
  • The dawning of desire, passion, enthusiasm and creativity.
  • The Power of Masculine fire, with its connotations of heat, vigor, contest, aspirations, enlightenment, and avidity to consume.
  • the overwhelming power of Lust to Be that vibrates at the core of all manifestation. Pure Power to create.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
